Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
If you are not in the mood for a clichéd film, this Robert Downey Jr. Classic is the perfect film for you to watch on Christmas. Apart from all the witty one line exchanges between Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer , it’s Michelle Monaghan and her santa suit that make it a perfect off beat Christmas movie to watch!
About a Boy
The film starts and ends with references to Christmas. In this 2003 comedy drama, Hugh Grant connects with a 12 year-old Nicholas Hoult, as he learns to be responsible with kids.
Jingle All the Way
The Arnold Schwarzenegger film is a laugh riot as Arnold tries his best to fight every parent in town to get a turbo man for his son as Christmas present, after he conveniently forgets about it.
